Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents this downloadable audiobook edition, of the number one, bestselling title in this new spin-off series from Percy Jackson creator, Rick Riordan. Old Enemies awaken as Camp Half-Blood's new arrivals prepare for war.

When Jason, Piper and Leo crash land at Camp Half-Blood, they have no idea what to expect. Apparently this is the only safe place for children of the Greek Gods - despite the monsters roaming the woods and demigods practising archery with flaming arrows and explosives.

But rumours of a terrible curse - and a missing hero - are flying around camp. It seems Jason, Piper and Leo are the chosen ones to embark on a terrifying new quest, which they must complete by the winter solstice. In just four days time. Can the trio succeed on this deadly mission - and what must they sacrifice in order to survive?

Good but doesn't pronounce names right

The story was excellent but the narrator doesn't pronounce the names right. I recommend this book to adventure seeking readers

Good story but the narrator... 🤮

Rick Riordian is a superstar in the fantasy/adventure genre but the way Joshua Swanson reads out this book ruined my experience. it is like google has gotten a new text to speech voice and it's plane, boring and lacks spirit. small things like some monster names and other stuff like that are being read out wrong and it annoys me. but still a good story.
